Join celebri­ties as they play de­tec­tive and go in search of their fam­ily his­tory, which of­ten re­veals sur­pris­ing se­crets from the past, in this fas­ci­nat­ing doc­u­men­tary. Tonight, UK ac­tor Nigel Havers (right,

Char­i­ots of Fire, Don’t Wait Up), whoo is most of­ten seen play­ing up­per class char­ac­ters, delves into his roots down his mother’s line, trav­el­ling to ru­ral Corn­wall to dis­cover a tale of il­le­git­i­macy wor­thy of a pe­riod drama. Then pur­su­ing his fa­ther’s side, Nigel finds him­self in Colch­ester learn­ing about a Vic­to­rian man who made good but ended up los­ing ev­ery­thing. It’s an eye-opener for ev­ery­one, es­pe­cially Havers.
